In Class 1st Day Activity

Okay, after 17 years of teaching, maybe I WON'T leave everything until the last minute, because I think I've just finished all my 1st day things. Hah! Who am I fooling. This is a fluke. Soon it will be back to business as usual. This year is different, though, because I think I'm going to fly out for the weekend before school starts to see my turning-80-years-old dad, so I won't have those 2 days to get ready.

I did just remake my 1st day in-class activity for precalculus. It really has nothing to do with precal, but that's the class I'll use it in. I like my calculus activity from last year and will do it again, and for digital electronics, I'm going to have them do a DE thing, and for CS, they will be coding independently from day 1.

I was inspired by this activity from KFouss. Woot! Internet Searches! 

Here is my version:





These will be done by the kids in class while I'm snapping pictures and calling roll and passing out a seating chart and passing out more information.

  1. Thanks, Elissa. I'm curious if they'll use number sense to get the first page answers ... or most of them.

    1. Celeste, I'm still tweaking, too. I'm wondering if this activity will go too quickly, so I need more more MORE! Heaven forbid they have some down time to just be kids on the first day...

    This is great:)! Could you post them in your downloadable activities? Also, do you have an answer key for the first page?
